The U13s and U15s entered the Eastern Counties Development Festival at Lakenham Hewitt last weekend.

Over the last few months, the club’s pool of players has regularly multiplied thanks to the hard work of the coaching at admin team.

During the season they have hosted school festival days, ‘bring a friend’ nights and #innerwarrior events, while they also hosted a training night with ladies team Southwold Swallows.

They even took a trip to Twickenham to watch ladies Premiership rugby in order to inspire existing members and create interest among potential new players. The club now has around 25 players across the U13/U15/U18 age groups. Fixtures and events are already pencilled in for next season.

New members are always welcome and anyone interested in joining can email becclesrugbygirls@gmail.com or call 07713 055479.

Meanwhile, a strong field competed in the spring sunshine for one of the year’s major trophies at Beccles Golf Club.

The Lilian Allen Cup was on offer and the course was looking in fine condition as the good weather brought about colour and growth.

Sensational scoring saw competitions secretary Will White plot his way to a single shot victory with a superb net round of 63 that featured impressive course management and creative play around the greens.

Niall Gill can consider himself unfortunate to be consigned to the runner’s up spot after a two-over-par gross round of 70 for a net 64. Chris Collison played some trademark towering long irons to finish in third.
